Cal Jet Elite Airways nonstop service between Carlsbad and Las Vegas takes off Thursday morning at 9am with its inaugural flight from McClellan-Palomar Airport to McCarran International Airport. The inaugural flight will feature a water cannon salute starting at 8am as part of the lift off ceremony. "We're delighted that North County residents can now say good-bye to the I-5 when flying to Las Vegas," said George Wozniak Presidentof Cal Jet Air. "Dealing with traffic to get to the airport downtown is a gamble our passengers don't have to take anymore." He added that the newly renovated, smaller airport in Carlsbad offers benefits like faster check-in, shorter lines, and $5 daily parking. In turn, Las Vegas residents who come to San Diego can now fly direct to visit North County destinations like Legoland and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park can start enjoying these attractions soon after landing in Carlsbad.
Though Cal Jet Elite offers premium luxury service, it is committed to keeping its pricing competitive with budget airlines. Its two daily flights between Carlsbad and Las Vegas begin at $69 each way. There are no reservation fees, no charges for the first checked bag, and complimentary beverages and snacks served to passengers seated in the 62 all-leather seats of the Bombardier CRJ-700 jet aircraft.
Cal Jet Elite is offering San Diego residents a chance to try their luck in winning a round trip flight to Las Vegas for just $21 each way. "In celebration of this momentous day, we're giving travel vouchers to the first 500 people who come to the Cal Jet Elite Airways ticket counter starting at 8am at Palomar Airport on Thursday," said Wozniak. But even those who don't hit the jackpot with the travel vouchers will enjoy the festivities of the day. "Elvis" will make an appearance in his red convertible in Carlsbad posing for pictures and entertaining the crowd.
